Description Description
Situated right on the lakeside, this small cottage has one of the best views of Glass Factory Bay.

Park in the circular drive, which is shared with the neighboring house and walks down the well-manicured lawn to the stairway leading to the cottage and be greeted by lovely potted gardens and a spectacular array of reflected sunshine off the lake.

Open the door to the studio-style upper level with open kitchen, dining area, and bedroom. Enjoy the lake view from the picture window!

Down the spiral staircase is the second sleeping area with open bathroom partitioned off in the rear corner. Bathroom hosts a standup shower, utility sink and commode.

Walk out onto the lakefront lawn through the downstairs door. The deck is the gathering center for this small lakeside cottage. Sunbathe, BBQ on the gas grill, enjoy lakeside dining, play a game of cards, or watch the stars come out; this deck will accommodate it all.

Close to Seneca Lake Wineries, public country club golf courses, fantastic restaurants, or shopping at the Waterloo Premium Outlet. Rent a boat to explore the lake or paddle the rowboat along the shore, either way you will enjoy the atmosphere at Glass Factory Bay!

We enjoyed our stay at this property.
A nice little cottage for the price. Not as private as other rentals we have stayed out as owners live on same property. Overall it was a nice well kept cottage. Location was great as we were near so many nice wineries and breweries!!!

Loved the views.  Sound of the lake at night was peaceful. And morning coffee on the deck was a treat!

Great Location

This little gem on the lake is in an outstanding location to help add variety to your vacation. Easy travel to hiking in the hills on the south end of the lake or a quick run up to Lake Ontario. Geneva is a great town with outstanding dining, parks, and trails.

Appreciated the attention to detail and thorough communication leading up to our vacation rental. We were pleasantly surprised with a kind note and small dog gift for our pup on arrival. The house was just as it appeared on the website. We look forward to booking with Finger Lake Premier Properties in the future.

I usually do not answer these surveys, but we were so happy with our stay at the Glass Factory Bay cottage that I wanted pass along this very positive rating. It is more expensive than a hotel, but so much nicer to be right on the water in our own cottage with a full kitchen. The sunrise in the morning and the stars at night are an added bonus.

I was pleasantly surprised with the items that were available at the home (dishes, cookware, cleaning supplies). I really anticipated having a bare bones situation where everything had to be stocked. I was also so thrilled with the security of the property (gates on the deck, gates leading to the stairs) because I brought my very active 1 and 3 yr. olds with me. They loved it and I loved knowing that they could roam around the deck without navigating the stairs. The homeowner was really nice, I would definitely make this an annual trip!
